Yannick & Tina – Grand Hotel Taipei & Garden Villa
As a photographer in Taiwan, cross-cultural weddings are my favorite kind of weddings. Maybe it’s because in addition to the difference in physical appearance they can encompass more unknowns, fun surprises, diverse traditions, and levity.
I also revel in my role as a bilingual (and often trilingual, when addressing older members of a wedding party in the Taiwanese language when necessary or just for an extra measure of fun interaction with guests) photographer taking on directorial duties to get everyone lined up for photos at the right places and times as well as finding spontaneous moments to preserve for eternity.
Yannick and Tina hired me to play that role, and all the color and excitement kept my energy level up from the moment I arrived at the gorgeous Grand Hotel first thing in the morning until I left the exquisite Garden Villa with the last guests late that night.
